About The Manfreds
Following the huge success of their 60th anniversary tour in 2023, The Manfreds will be making their way back to The Roses in 2024 for a much awaited reappearance.
The Manfreds are considered one of the finest and most respected bands from the 1960s era. Their numerous hits were not just ‘pop’ songs, many were R&B based with an undercurrent of jazz - a very unusual but winning combination of playing style and substance.
As a result, their records have a timeless quality and, some 60 years on, The Manfreds, with original front man Paul Jones, will be performing many of their hits, including Do Wah Diddy Diddy, one of the most popular and instantly recognisable songs of the 60s, and still the biggest audience pleaser at their concerts, along with a mix of Jazz and Blues covers and tracks from their individual solo albums.
Paul Jones, with his unique harmonica sound, will be joined by Tom McGuinness on guitar, Pete Riley on drums, Mike Gorman on keyboards, Marcus Cliffe on bass, and Simon Currie on saxophone/flute.
